Default Is this Skate Banana too big for me?

I am 133lb in weight and 5'6 in height, wearing size 7 boots.
I am wondering if a 152 Skate Banana would be too large for a guy like me. Normally I do all mountain freestyle and freeride.
Is its waist width of 25.2 too wide for my foot size?
I have to choose from a 148 and a 152. So which one is better?
thank you guys for ur input.

I'm the same size except for 40 lbs heavier, demoed a a bananna last season for a half a day, it was too wide for my small feet...really cumbersome to edge to edge other wise felt fine...wished they made a narrow version

Both 148, the one I mentioned above, and 151 are Narrow version. The thing I have noticed is Skate Banana is made wider than normal boards of the same length, like 152cm vs. other brands' 152.

[threadjack]
are u guys going for the 148/151 because of his weight? or the smaller size shoe?

i'm 10lbs heavier but my 10.5 boots didn't look like they'd fit a 151n.

was eyeballing those shorter boards but didn't think they'd fit boot-wise. i read that you could go 5mm shorter on those banana boards too(?)
